If you’re like us and love it when airlines announce new flight routes, you’re going to want to keep reading.
Start-up airline Breeze just announced that it will add a whopping 35 routes from 10 new cities.
Let’s take a look at the details of the airline’s new routes for the summer.
New Breeze Airways Routes Coming to 10 Cities
Breeze is expanding to the U.S. West Coast, with routes from Las Vegas (LAS), Los Angeles (LAX), San Bernardino (SBD), and San Francisco (SFO).
Over on the East Coast, new service is coming to Syracuse (SYR).
And across the South, Breeze is starting service from Fort Myers (RSW), Jacksonville (JAX), Nashville (BNA), Sarasota (SRQ), and Savannah (SAV). Tickets start as low as $99 each way.
Travelers can choose between 3 fare types, marketed as “Nice,” “Nicer,” and “Nicest” and can purchase an upgrade to first class. Nice fares come with standard legroom and a personal item, while Nicer and Nicest fares include priority boarding, drinks, snacks, and checked bags.
Service from the new cities will begin in May of this year, with Jacksonville starting on May 19. Flights from San Francisco start May 25, while service from Nashville starts May 26.
As of June 2022, service will begin to Savannah on June 3, Sarasota on June 4, Las Vegas on June 9, Fort Meyers on June 11, and Los Angeles on June 29.
Daily service from San Bernardino to San Francisco begins on August 4.
New Airbus A220 Orders
The airline also announced that it had placed an order for 80 Airbus A220-300 aircraft, with options for 40 more. One aircraft will be delivered per month for 6 years.
“The A220-300 is a game-changer for us as we now add long-haul flights and transcontinental service,” Breeze’s CEO, entrepreneur David Neeleman, said in a statement.
“The Airbus aircraft embodies the Breeze ideal of merging kindness with technology, pairing unrivaled passenger comfort with eco-friendly efficiency,” Neeleman said.
Breeze’s initial A220 aircraft deliveries will feature 126 seats, with 36 of them in first class arranged in a 2-2 configuration. Later deliveries of the A220 will offer 137 seats, with 12 in first class. Breeze’s first class seats offer 39 inches of pitch, which is more than Delta Air Lines’ A220-300 fleet (37 inches).
Breeze has been expanding rapidly in recent months. The airline is a relatively new start-up that launched in May 2021 — now it has nearly 80 routes across 18 states.
In February, the low-cost carrier announced its fifth base at Hartford’s Bradley International Airport (BDL). That expansion will bring a handful of new routes to Connecticut’s capital, in addition to the 5 already served by the airline.
Those destinations, announced today, include nonstop flights to Akron-Canton (CAK), Jacksonville (JAX), Nashville (BNA), Richmond (RIC), Sarasota (SRQ), and Savannah (SAV).

From Breeze’s order of 80 new planes to a slew of new routes, this is pretty exciting news, especially for West Coast flyers. Travelers looking for more options from the cities involved — which include a few smaller airports — should be pleased with Breeze’s expansion of its route network which comes just in time for the summer travel season.
